Lecture

Defining Palliative Care and Dispelling Myths

Presenter
Christine Ritzo, RN, BSN Clinical Outreach Nurse, Mission Hospice and Home Care

Palliative care is holistic symptom management for those faced with a life limiting illness. It focuses on treatment for the mind, body and soul. One of the most common myths is that when palliative support is suggested, it means you will die soon. This is often far from actuality, especially if curative treatments are still an option.  

Registration is required.
